I have an Admiral washer that is off balance in the spin cycle almost every wash. You have to rebalance the clothes quite a few times to make it through the wash cycle. Any ideas?

Is the washer leveled properly? Both front legs are adjustable.

Is the floor solid?

Is it enough water in the washer? Insufficient amount of water could cause a dis-balance.

Remove the front panel and check the suspension.

Yes the washer is level and is solid. I took the front off and found all 6 springs good. The washer does fill up to the proper level. On this model is there pads or anything that it rides on? I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Do you know where I can look at the repair manual so I can see what the tub turns on undeneath and see if that is the problem?

Default To replace snubber

Admiral Washer LNC6760A71, LNC6762, LNC6757, LNC6764, LNC6766 and others
Snubber is a cone shaped Teflon ring that supports the weight of the drum and transmission. When it wears out, drum will knock on sides of cabinet and washer may walk across floor. To replace snubber :
  • Remove power and all hoses
  • Lift top by inserting putty knife just inside front clips to release
  • Remove front and rear panels, 10mm
  • Disconnect drain hose from bottom of drum, pliers - spring clip
  • Remove 6 springs from bottom of drum using channel lock or spring tool
  • Lay on side, remove drive belt by turning large drive pulley and side tension to belt
  • Remove water level hose on side of drum, pliers - spring clip
  • Remove drum from cabinet by sliding out top. It is not necessary to remove drum from transmission.
  • Inspect base plate for damage
  • Lay drum on padded surface, upside down
  • Remove C clip, drive pulley, being careful to observe order of parts and washers
  • Loosen 6 screws holding down old snubber. DO NOT REMOVE SCREWS, THERE IS A VERY STRONG SPRING UNDER THIS PLATE. Loosen screws only enough to get old snubber out.
  • Clean dust from area.
  • Insert new snubber, keeping it even while tightening screws.
  • Reverse other processes above to assemble washer. Replace any broken drum springs. Replace belt if worn.

Cost: $5.00 time: 1.5 hours

I have the same deal and was wondering if there is any way to service or adjust the counterweight, as my ring and springs look and seem to be in good condition.
